|ERIC ED370415: On the Representation of Mandarin Syllable Structure. - ERIC|
This paper argues that Mandarin Chinese has a fixed syllabic represented by the template CGVX, with one slot in the onset and three slots in the rimeprime (as projection of the rime). It claims that the pre-nucleus glide is obligatory, is an independent constituent, and is adjoined to the rime constituent. Extensive evidence for this template is drawn from an analysis of derived mid vowels, distributional constraints on syllable structure, reduplication in language games, and rhyming in contempo...

|ERIC ED381003: Nasal Assimilation and Labiovelar Geometry. - ERIC|
The representation of labiovelars in feature geometry is discussed, using primarily evidence from Konni, a Gur language of northern Ghana, and data from some other languages. The discussion is based on an observation that place assimilation of a nasal consonant to labiovelars does not result universally in a labiovelar nasal, as has been theorized previously. Relevant data from Konni are presented first, and two possibilities for analysis of Konni and other languages are considered and rejected...

|ERIC ED380991: Patterns of Phonological Disturbances in Adult Aphasia. - ERIC|
Two studies of adult aphasia, focusing on phonological disturbances, are presented. In the first study, subjects were 15 adults wit moderate aphasia and five age-matched controls. A variety of speech production and speech perception tests were administered, including tests of syllable discrimination, auditive word-picture matching, articulation, repetition of real words and non-words, naming, and picture description...

|ERIC ED380063: Audio-Vision: Audio-Visual Interaction in Desktop Multimedia. - ERIC|
Although sophisticated multimedia authoring applications are now available to amateur programmers, the use of audio in of these programs has been inadequate. Due to the lack of research in the use of audio in instruction, there are few resources to assist the multimedia producer in using sound effectively and efficiently. This paper addresses the problem by providing some basic understanding of the cognitive and affective effects of audio when used with visual material in a computer-mediated env...

|ERIC ED380990: Consonant Harmony. - ERIC|
Consonant harmony, a complex phonological assimilation in which segments (usually consonants, but sometimes even vowels) become identical, which occurs in the speech of young children and adult aphasics, is analyzed, particularly as it occurs in Finnish-speakers. Consonant harmony has an articulatory basis: it is a trend toward repetition of the same articulatory gesture instead of more varied gestures...
